Blog Tour Reviews & Giveaway: HELL'S KNIGHTS & HEAVEN'S SINNERS by Bella Jewel









HELL'S KNIGHTS (The MC Sinners series #1)

by: Bella Jewel



A Biker Erotica novel



Synopsis:


Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?
I thought I knew sex. I've had sex. Heck, I've felt lust. Once, I've even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was. 
Until I met Cade.
He's the meaning of sex. 
He's a biker.
He's dangerous.
He's powerful.
He's dominant.
He wants me.
My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know. But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.



Excerpt:


He leans closer, lifting his heavily ringed fingers to stroke my cheek so lightly, I tremble. 
“You’re the kind of girl that makes a man want to stop what he’s doing, just so he can get a moment to look at that angelic face – a face that will keep him awake for the rest of his fuckin’ life. That’s the kind of girl you are, sugar.”
I swallow, feeling my body coming to life beneath his touch. 
“I think you’re wrong,” I breathe as he leans even closer. 
“I’m not wrong. I’ve seen a lot of people in my life, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. None of them are as real as you. I’ll fuck you, sugar. I’ll claim you because you’re the meaning of need. You’re what I’ve been lookin’ for.”
Is he serious? I tremble as he moves even closer, bringing his lips only millimeters from mine. I swallow over and over, trying to think of anything else but him. How could he possibly want me that much, after a mere week and a bit? It’s not possible; he doesn’t know me. He just wants something different, a challenge perhaps? I don’t know, but I do know he’s completely wrong about me. 
“I’m not what anybody looks for. I’m not what they fight for. I’m not what they breathe for. I’m not the girl you think I am.”
He leans down, shocking me as he slides his lips over mine, gently at first, then roughly when I begin to respond. I can’t help my hand, as it lifts up to wrap around the chain on his jeans. I tug it, bringing him closer. His boots crunch in the dirt as he takes a step closer, pressing his body against mine. I open my mouth, allowing his tongue to slide in and tangle with mine. His fingers travel up my neck, over my cheek and then he thrusts them into my hair, tangling it around them. The kiss is the kind of kiss that stops your breath, the kind of kiss that stops everything. For a split second, all I can feel is him. When he pulls back, I snake my tongue out and lick the last of him off my bottom lip.
“You might not think you’re worth fighting for, or breathing for, but let me tell you, sugar – everyone deserves to be fought for, even those who think they aren’t worth it.”

Star Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Heat Rating: HOT HOT HOT!!



WOW!!  This book took me by surprise with how much I LOVED IT!  I sat down while making dinner to start this book (thinking I would get a chapter or two in before the evening) and my family had to order pizza.  I could NOT put this down!  I read Hell's Knights cover to cover in one sitting (only getting up once to refill my drink). 

Cade and Addison's story has everything you would want in a biker book; foul mouthed characters, tough situations, gritty pasts, dirty sex and HOT men who fall hard!  Bella Jewel has fast become one of my favorite authors to write about MC clubs and do it well.  The writing is real, raw and honest.  The pacing is quick and moves the story along to the point you can't stop until it is all over and you are shaking your Kindle for more story to magically appear.  I am not always a huge fan of switching from past to present tense but with Hell's Knights this worked really well in telling this story, especially along side with the dual POVs (which I always love).

Addison is a tough, independent woman who has had a rough life.  She is bitter and running away from her problems (you can't blame her), but she is determined to break free and start over no matter what.  Addison ends up at Hell's Knights compound, her father's motorcycle club, as her last resort while she tries to save money.  What she wasn't expecting was to find her place with a bunch of dominant, rough and tumble bikers.  I really liked Addison, she was a smart mouthed brat, fiercely independent and wanting someone to show her they care enough to stand up for her and protect her from harm.

Enter Cade. YUM!!  He is a take no nonsense biker, who is used to getting what he wants when he wants it.  I loved every dirty, filthy thing that came out of his mouth!  He was strong, in control and fiercely protective of what his considers his.  The chemistry between Cade and Addison was HOT and the story just sucked me in for the whole wild ride!

Bella Jewel can write characters brilliantly, she taps into emotions with such raw and gritty subjects while at the same time taking your heart and making it work in overtime.  The dialogue was coarse and rough while also being sweet and heart-melting, with just a few words TONS of things could be said that tugged at the reader's emotions.  Hell's Knights is a book that you won't want to end, that rare book where you could keep reading about these characters for much longer than the author will let you.  The good news it this is a series so I know we will see Cade and Addison again!

If you haven't read this series, you should! The MC Sinners series ranks right up there with the best of the biker romance books out there (if you like those kinds of books).  Hell's Knights is a GREAT read and Bella Jewel is definitely on my must-buy-every-book-she-writes list!  I can't wait read more in this fantastic series!

HEAVEN'S SINNERS (The MC Sinners series #2)

by: Bella Jewel



A Biker Erotica novel



Synopsis:


Spike knows tragedy, he knows that feelings are better left hidden. He refuses to put his heart out there again, it's a pain he's not willing to ever let himself feel. He's got a mission. He's got a goal. Nothing is going to get in his way. He will seek his revenge.
But then there's Ciara, the sister of his deceased wife. She's beautiful and damned determined to throw herself into his life in hopes they can reform an old friendship, but Spike won't hear of it, and Ciara refuses to give up.
Who will win the battle of wills?



Excerpt:


“No, I guess I didn’t. I wanted to, but then Cheyenne came in and you took a liking to her, so I didn’t bother.”“I went to her, and I fell in love with her, but she wasn’t what I wanted for myself, Tomcat. I wanted you, but you wouldn’t give me a God damned inch.”“You didn’t think of telling me?” I snap, crossing my arms. “You didn’t think that maybe you should have said something before you just ran off with Cheyenne?”“What was the fuckin’ point? You couldn’t fuckin’ see it. I tried, fuck knows I tried, and yet you didn’t see me. I was sick of tryin’. Cheyenne threw herself on me, and I thought what the fuckin’ heck?”I feel my body begin to shake. “I didn’t see it, Spike. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I was so scared I would ruin everything if you knew how I felt.”“Fuck, Ciara, I was constant with you. I picked you up every mother fuckin’ day, I spent every mother fuckin’ weekend with you, I was there all the time.”“I know that!” I cry. “God, Spike, I know you were ok? I didn’t see it. I was young and I didn’t fucking see it. Then she came along and I stopped believing there was a chance. It was not just on me, or you, it was on us both. We both walked away without telling each other there was so much more to it. I know what I gave up, I know I passed you over to her, and I regret it every day.”“I don’t regret it, Tomcat. I loved Cheyenne, and I don’t regret marrying her…bu-”I get to my feet, hurt. His words are something I already knew, but it’s the way he said them. He grips my arm before I can spin away, and yanks me back down. I land harshly, and slap his hand away but his grip is too strong, and I can’t get my hand out of his.“One fucking moment,” I spit. “One fucking moment can’t go by without her being better. One fucking moment, I’d like to mean a tiny bit more than her. You can’t fucking see it, can you? You walk around with those stupid fucking rose colored glasses on, unable to see anything she did. I never doubted you loved her Spike, I knew you did. I saw it. I lived it. But for one fucking moment I wish it was me.”I jerk my hand out of his grip, and spin, getting to my feet and turning to walk off. 
“It was you,” he yells, stopping me in my tracks. “I don’t regret her, Ciara. Not for a fuckin’ second, I don’t regret lovin’ her, I don’t regret marryin’ her. Cheyenne changed my life, she changed a part of me, but you, Ciara, were the one who opened my heart. You were the first one to claim it, and you were the one who fuckin’ tore it out of my chest the day you ran off. You never gave me a mother fuckin’ chance to explain myself to you. I woke up after we slept together, and you were gone. Couldn’t fuckin find you. It was you who took my heart, and you who fuckin’ broke it. She picked the pieces up when I couldn’t find you, and so I stopped fighting. Cheyenne might have had me in the end, Tomcat, but my heart was always yours first.”

Star Rating: 4 out of 5 

Heat Rating: HOT HOT!!


I don't know why, but something about a tattooed, pierced and foul-mouthed biker with kinks really hits all my "I can't wait to read" buttons.  Spike and Ciara's story was full of drama, devastating heartache and touching break-through moments that literally took my breath away!  I was curious about Spike since we met him in Hell's Knights and getting his story in Heaven's Sinners was worth the wait!  

Bella Jewel can write broken characters!  My heart ached for Spike  since Hell's Knights and I couldn't imagine how he was going let go of the past and be able to moved forward with Ciara, but it was done beautifully (and believably).  Bella Jewel created this amazing story where you live in the past and present, all while reading the story from both Spike and Ciara's POV.  The reader gets immersed in the angry, stubborn and emotional roller coaster that these two whisk you away on and it is a gut wrenching ride!

I don't even know how to explain this story without giving too much away, so I will just say this is a MUST read if you like the course, rough world of bikers.  The writing is terrific, the dialogue flows naturally and really fits the characters.  Heaven's Sinners has great pacing and the dual POV's really worked well with the story, I liked that we get to read bits about the past while at the same time moving forward in the story, you really get a sense of both characters and start to understand their hurt.  There is a LOT of anger in this story but it fits and doesn't take it too far or get annoying, it seems real and raw and it makes the emotional parts all that more sigh worthy.  

Heaven's Sinners isn't a book full of fluff and light, this is a dark, rough and gritty read about subjects that will rip your heart out and leave you gasping.  If you like your sex dirty with a side of kink, then Spike is your man (and you will want to be Ciara)!  Holy HOT!!  Bella Jewel's books need to come with a fan and a bucket of ice water!  

I highly recommend this series, The MC Sinner's series is fast becoming one of my favorite biker series to read and I can not wait for more!!  Do yourself a favor and snatch these up and settle in for a crazy, emotional ride that will leave you craving a biker for your own!
